Solar Panels arrived and installed :)

After careful review of various proposals, we decided to work with mcsolar.com. They offered the lowest price and quickest installation. Here’s the timeline of events.

Day 1: Signed the contract

Day 3: MCSolar got the permit from Sunnyvale, CA

Day 5: Panels and other equipment arrived. Installation started.

Day 6: Panels and inverter are installed, wired, tested. System is up!πŸ™‚ Generating 3.1kW around noon time with clear Sun.

Day 10: Inspector arrived / approved the install.

Now, we’re all ready to go except PG&E needs to come and replace the meter and then activate our grid-tied solar system. It’s sad to see it sit offline. Reportedly PG&E is 3-weeks backlogged, so we will wait.

Day 55 (seriously): PG&E came in and installed the new meter that works both directions. We have been unable to turn it on till now.
